60+ grams of oil covered in vacuum pump oil..
So i turned my pump on and went to sleep woke up and the pump was off and my cps vp6d was melted the oil sight glass was melted the brain was melted, and sure enough there was mineral oil all over my wax
so i basically trashed it
but now thinking about it, could i wash it with ethyl alcohol then carbon filter and filter the shit out of it for a topical use at least i know its not safe for vaping as is.
damn man i am sorry to hear that.... but i think a carbon filtering will pull that oil out, not sure some one will chime in because i know this has happened to other people
Thanks for the kind words twitch,

Fade dog - If you have any insight at all please let me know. Even if you say to just throw it away. Your basically my Jesus, anything you say goes.
If anyone has any thought please share, I'm Probly gonna go grab iso and carbon now

Vac pump oil is a mineral oil, why cant you just wash it with liquid propane again, ? Did it penetrate into the wax?
Rinse it and cook it down again, pull a vac repeatedly while triple evacuating , breaking the vac between pulls with nitrogen or something inert, then pull it down again.
Its worth a try, besides whats the difference between liquid propane etx and oil, both are chemicals, i would guess whatever you extracted it with is much worse than the vac oil.
And change your oil every time, The oil holds all the nasty stuff from whatever you are evacuating, so the cleaner it is the easier it is to remove other nasty stuff, until you get all the noncondensables out you wont pull a good vac either,no matter what the gage says, is measured in microns, not vacuum.
I would get some everclear and try and sperate the 2.. iso is somewhat miscible from its longer carbon chain. You could probly mix ethanol and the hash oil and mineral oil and hopefully the goodies would rather be in etoh. But they will separate and you could then toss the mineral oil ..... I've never seen a successful carbon filtration, it either isn't selective and removes everything or it puts a bunch of black crap in your oil... I don't know man just thought id share my thoughts..... wait for fd

My plan is to blast it with butane again to spray off any physical oil I can get off, the. I'm going to rinse it with butane in a mason or a extraction tube threw muslin fabric .
Then I was gonna put carbon in before the filter but I don't think I will now,
I can't get ethyl because I'm in CA,
And yes I had two slabs that got rained on and then sat in the oil , I then woke up and pulled slabs out and tossed into a grocery bag , I just checked and both slabs are now face first into each other.
So there's a good amount if seperation to do.
Any help is appreciated thank you. This was a costly mistake.
I'm buying iso now but holding off on carbon
lmfao you went to sleep knowingly with your pump running with 60gs of oil in the chamber???? come onnnnnn..... your pump should never run for more than 5 mins, then close the valve and done. most of the time that is MORE than enough vacuum if youre using any heat souce.
Vac you ever try getting more bubble action from your oil by continuously running the vac and never sleeping? Dam ejuice vape pen can keep me up till 6 am easy and I spent the run on the forums.
